Fargo - The Heap - Advance Preview

If you don’t want to be out of the loop at the watercooler tomorrow, I suggest that you try your very hardest to watch Fargo live tonight - and if you work in an office where people don’t watch Fargo, may I also suggest a new job? In addition to the typical twists and turns we’re used to with this series already, tonight packs an extra something special. How special? Well, FX has asked that we don’t say a WORD about it until after the episode has aired. And truthfully, as a twist and narrative device, what goes down in the last 20 minutes is so out-of-left-field that I wouldn’t give it away even if I could. Still, I CAN talk about the first 30 minutes of the episode, and in typical Fargo fashion, there’s still much to discuss.

Lester (Martin Freeman) is living the bliss of having - literally - gotten away with murder. Now that his brother is locked up and Deputy Oswalt has put the case behind him, Lester really gets to start a new life in “The Heap”. Gone is the awkward, scared, bumbling insurance salesman we met in the pilot: Lester is a ladies man now, and it seems the adrenalin of pulling one over on everyone has made Mr Nygaard fearless. His interactions with various women (including his brothers wife and an adoring co-worker, no less) are hilarious to watch. Plus we finally get another appearance from Sam Hess’ hilariously dim-witted sons, as an enraged Gina (the fantastic Kate Walsh) shows up to confront Lester about her insurance being denied.

Elsewhere, my favorite scene of the episodes actually comes before the big twist in the final 20 minutes. It’s a rather quiet scene between Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) and his failed assassin, Mr Wrench (Russell Harvard). Harvard has been one of the unsung heroes of the season in my eye, at times both terrifying and hilarious. Here, he’s without his other half - RIP Mr Numbers - and totally at the mercy of Malvo. The scene ends rather ambiguously, but I’m definitely hoping there’s more Mr Wrench to come (Season 2 as a prequel set in Fargo & starring Mr Numbers and Mr Wrench? Sold).

Like I said, “The Heap” certainly isn’t an episode that you want to miss. While it may not pack quite the punch that “Buridan’s Ass” did, the final scenes are mesmerizing and a bit puzzling. Noah Hawley has done an incredible job crafting the season thus far, keeping the tone of a Coen Brothers picture but adding his own unique vision, so I trust wherever he’s taking us. After the episode airs check back to SpoilerTV for a piece on my conversation with Hawley, where he discussed the implication of what goes down in tonights episode and what’s ahead.

Hit the comments if you’ve got predictions about tonight, or head back after the show airs to share your thoughts. There's a few more tidbits from the episode below.

Stuff You’ll Love:
- Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele continue their arc as FBI Agents Budge and Pepper. While they spend the majority of the episodes on their own, a final scene suggests they’ll soon connect to the bigger picture.
- Lester wielding a stapler as a weapon. Wait and see.
- The ending. Because I REALLY doubt you’re going to see this coming.

Fargo airs Tuesdays at 10pm EST on FX. “The Heap” premieres tonight.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
